M. C. Migel Library, American Printing House for the Blind

The M.C. Migel Library at the American Printing House for the Blind, Inc. (APH) is one of the largest and most important research collections on the non-medical aspects of blindness and visual impairment in the world. Established more than 75 years ago by the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB), the M. C. Migel Library was acquired by APH in 2009. The collection contains items on aging, orientation and mobility, education, employment, and rehabilitation. It also includes a collection of items relating to deaf-blindness, fictional titles that feature blind or visually impaired characters, books on Helen Keller, children's books that touch on blindness and visual impairment, and many important AFB publications dating back to the 1920s.

American Association of Workers for the Blind Proceedings -
http://www.aph.org/museum/aawb-reports.html

The American Association of Workers for the Blind (AAWB) was created in 1905. It consisted primarily of administrators and workers at sheltered workshops. Later, other blindness professionals (particularly those from vocational rehabilitation programs) joined the AAWB. The AAIB (the instructors) and the AAWB (the workers) joined together in 1984 to become The Association for Education and Rehabilitation of the Blind and Visually Impaired (AER).
